The DC Transit Ordinance, DC Law 20-142, is a transit benefit ordinance requiring employers with 20 or more employees in Washington DC to offer Commuter Benefits in one of three ways:

1. A pre-tax transit fringe benefit

2. An employer-paid benefit program where the employer supplies a transit pass or covered reimbursement of vanpool or bicycling costs

3. Employer provided transportation at no cost to the covered employee in a vanpool or bus operated by or for the employer

The law was signed by Mayor Gray on July 29, 2014, and became effective after Congressional review on December 17, 2014. The Ordinance aims to encourage the use of public transportation to reduce use of single occupancy vehicles.
